TicketNetwork Advisory -- New Van Halen Tour Sparks Demand for Tickets(January 13, 2012)
SOUTH WINDSOR, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/13/12 -- Van Halen has announced that they are once again returning to the stage with original lead man, David Lee Roth, causing a surge in the sale of tickets to their tour. In the week since announcing the tour's schedule, Van Halen has surpassed the previous leader, Coldplay, as the group with the most tickets sold on the TicketNetwork Exchange this year*.
The high demand has driven ticket prices up considerably. The current overall average price for the Van Halen tour is $260. That is significantly higher than the average price for the group's 2008 tour, which was $190. The lowest average price for the upcoming tour is $188 for the March 9 concert in Buffalo, NY, while the highest average price is $382 for the March 3 concert in Uncasville, CT.
The 2012 Van Halen Tour begins on February 18 in Louisville, KY, and ends on June 26 in New Orleans, LA. The tour follows the February 7 release of their latest album, A Different Kind of Truth, which is the band's first studio album in 14 years.
